2021 Fall Sports Schedules released -- FRIDAY CARDINAL COUPLE


Good Friday morning to all, 

The baseball gods are funny sometimes, sending hurricane storms our way last night causing the Thirsty Thursday Bats baseball to get postponed... allowing me to get home in time for today's write up.  Back to reporting the news, as several fall sports released their schedules for the upcoming seasons.  Jared's already blocking off his calendar for multiple game-day photo coverage. 

The gang will definitely have thoughts on some stand-out games from the releases on Saturday's podcast recording. The rivalry games/matches are always fan favorites.  Postseason rematch and revenge is always sweet, too! Volleyball and Field Hockey look to build off of record setting seasons and Women's Soccer looks to improve on a tough overall split season from last year. 

Check out the fall slates!

UofL opens the season in Tempe where they will battle Cal Poly, Texas A&M Corpus Christi, Arizona on Aug. 27-28. The Cardinals will host the Cardinal Classic, which will feature Missouri, South Dakota and Northern Kentucky Sept. 3-5 in L&N Federal Credit Union Arena.  The annual rivalry game with reigning NCAA champs (blehhhhhh) the 'blue team' is September 15th at L&N.  There are 13 home matches for the Cards.  In the spring, UofL finished the 2020 season 15-3 and ACC Champs.

The Cards 2021 schedule includes nine regular season home contests. The slate also features four NCAA tournament teams including national champion North Carolina and runner-up Michigan as well as 10 opponents ranked among the top 20 in the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) final 2020-21 poll.  The Cardinals will  kick off a tough five-game road swing in mid-October at #2 Michigan in a rematch of the 2020-21 NCAA semifinal game where UofL fell 2-1 to the Wolverines in a shootout.

Ten ACC matchups and no Kentucky (currently) on the 2021 slate


Random thought: Two weeks from the Olympics!!! 

Go Cards and Go USA!

  2. That Field Hockey schedule looks brutal. Wouldn't you know it, I go to my first Bats game in a couple years and the rains came. At least the margaritas and company was good!

    Well it looks like the Cards will be coming to town to play my Tigers in Volleyball. I don't do the Volleyball much, we're not real good at it, but we occasionally make a soccer match or two.

    Looking into coming up for our football game against the Cards. Ol' Clemson Cuz usually organizes those bus trips. We had a blast last time, seeing Paulie and Curtis. Paulie has a nice tailgate facility up there, y'know.

    We are back from LA and California and truth be told, it was just a little too hectic and busy out there for Bea and me. Ha, ha
